New Year, New You: Orlando

Every year, people are reciting New Year's Eve resolutions while making a toast, wearing a hat or blowing a noisemaker. Some of these declarations are kept, but many or most are put to the wayside. This year, make 2010 the year for a better you by keeping your promises to others and most importantly, to yourself. (Photo courtesy of The Spa)
